    pool cleaner under solar blanket

    The online dealer I bought a Zodiac Ranger from said it can be used under the solar blanket, is this true or is he smoking his own product?

    I use mine under the solar cover and it works great.

    I use my wahoo (almost identical to the ranger) under the solar cover; it "patterns" but it does get most the pool.
